At LEXIA, we hold free seminars once every two to three months. LEXIA's attorneys-at-law and patent attorneys carefully select the theme for each seminar based on the firm's own unique perspective and develop seminar materials that participants will be able to appropriately adopt for their own businesses.
At our seminars, LEXIA members may serve as speakers or overseas agents may be invited to participate as guest lecturers. However, when overseas agents speak at our seminars, in addition to explaining practices in their own countries, they also hold a joint discussion with our members so that comparisons can be made with practices in Japan. We have received favorable responses to our seminar questionnaire from participants, some of whom traveled from as far away as Kyushu in the west and Tokyo and the Tohoku area in the east to attend seminars held in Osaka. Please note that our seminars are open to not only our clients, but also other interested parties, so please feel free to apply if you wish to attend.
